Vanity Plate Birthday


This card uses MFT's Vanity License Plate set. It comes with a die in the shape of a license plate and I thought it would be so fun to make vanity-plate cards. It's also a great alphabet on its own. To make this card, I stamped HAPPY twice, one right over the other. The Birthday panel is separate and popped up on dimensionals so that you can only see the top half and bottom half of the HAPPY letters.

You clever people will have noticed that Birthday has 8 letters, but there are only 7 in the rainbow (actually, really only 6 because it's impossible to find an 'indigo' inkpad!). So I added Turquoise and Melon as my extra colours.

I like versatile designs that you can use for different occasions. You could do Merry Christmas like this as well. Changing the alphabet (or all lower case?!) would also change the feeling. The possibilities are endless - and that's what makes this hobby so much fun!

....you did it again! Clever as ever! The sky is the limit regarding the versatility of this idea. I am picturing a sweet baby card in varying shades of blues or pinks.

What a fun and new and modern die and stamp set! You have sold it, girl! The fun and new and modern rainbow colors is a hoot! I love that you effortlessly get 'er done and don't let the "box" limit you! Add rainbow colors? Well, why not?!
